Roll call of employers who have not laid anybody off yet
ETA: Not just employers. If the company you work at has gone unscarred, check in.

Not bragging. Just think good news is nice to mix in.

We have not had to let anybody go and I am not anticipating it. This is always the slow time of year for us, so it's hard to judge how much of our current state is seasonality and how much is the bug. Our industries (logging and pipeline) are deemed essential, but the downstream market for wood is highly dependent on housing starts, which are obviously crashing. We'll see.

In any case, with the SBA assistance on the way (knock on wood), I should be good for 2-3 months. I will avoid any downsizing as long as I can.

Anybody else able to keep their troops at full (or nearly full) strength so far?

I've kept all my employees working. Haven't missed a day. I do have one employee that voluntarily has taken leave due to a sick relative.

CPA firm. I have not laid anyone off and we hired one more person. To be fair, she was hired before all this started but was not scheduled to start until this week.

We are crazy busy right now but I expect to lose a few clients going forward. A few smaller restaurants and a hand full of retail that were barely hanging on probably won't make it our of this.

My friend is not on these boards, so I am checking in via proxy. His clinic is getting hammered right now, yet he is maintaining his staff at full pay despite his losses.

In, my division has taken a hit (industrial building construction), but we still have active projects working and the commercial side is business as usual so far.

My company of 76,000 hasn’t furloughed or laid off anyone. As a matter fact, business is solid so far (large technology company)

Some companies will not qualify/get declined for SBA assistance.
